Tips / Handy Hints

Preparation Time: 15 mins Cooking Time: 15 mins You can also use fresh corn kernels, when available. If you're not using heart shaped cutters, carefully drop heaped spoonfuls of batter into oil, and fry on each side until golden. Fritters can be kept warm in the oven until all the mixture is cooked. Try also serving these fritters with a side of bacon or smoked salmon!
